Things I have noticed so far

Bad things
1. No satelite status in the Location Application
2. The UI look very ugly(to me) when a line is halfed by the end of the display
3. Only one new widget - Vlingo

Good things
1. 53MB free RAM after reboot (On v12 it was arround 43MB)

Thats it for now ..

p.s. I have updated mine via Ovi suite 2.0.0.10 and Windows 7 64bit
The Windows was not able to find one of the many drivers, but still the update was successfull

They have fixed two of my pet hates...

on v12 the task list you get when you hold the menu button down would take two taps to select the items for the first 10 seconds or so. This is not as it should be and now the options only take a single tap.

also, when the phone was locked and the LCD + backlight is off, opening the phone it used to take a while to reactivate the backlight - the screen rotated quickly, but the backlighting seemed to lag behind. Now when I open the phone, it seems much quicker and the screen is lit almost straight away.

I think AFTER you flash, you should format both of your drive, starting with mass memory.

No letters on dial pad here either.

0570817: RM-505_EMEA_EURO_QW1 Black

Like some others, I'm stuck on loading music and podcasts.

Photo's take awhile for initial thumbnail cache. Left it for about 10 mins.

No new themes!

Only noticed one new icon for text reader.

This is no Jesus update. All they seem to have done is add kinetic scrolling (which is actually a painfully sluggish attempt at that), and sorted the music player out.

Oh, the only useful bit is a long keypress on the keyboard now brings up the numbers instead of having to use the blue shift key.

V30 please.......

Scrolling in ovi store is impossible, it just opens the first thing you click on when you try to scroll down

No problems here. Make sure you have the latest OVI Store app installed.
